Here are some of our routines:
Continuous Provision: Our provision is developed with the children. We plan together sharing the children's ideas and interests. They are able to make choices and develop their own ideas. We aim to provide a wide variety of relevant and worthwhile experiences that will challenge children of all abilities, develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across the curriculum.
PE Our class PE lessons are on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.
Homework: is given out on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Friday.
Phonics: We have a daily active phonics sesson which covers the statutory DfE regulated phonics using the Supersonic Phonics Friends Scheme. Children have many opportunities to practise their phonics in provision provided throughout the classroom.
Reading: Children have a group guided reading session with their teacher to develop new reading skills and comprehension skills. We aim to read with each pupil each week. Children are encouraged to read daily with an adult at home.
Spelling: Children in year 1 learn spellings each week. Please practise 3 times ready for a spelling quiz on Friday.
